Talk Nation Radio: Edward Herman on the International Criminal Court (for Africa)
Edward S. Herman says that Desmond Tutu is wrong to support the
International Criminal Court, given its bias for prosecuting only
Africans and only those Africans not working with the United States.
Herman is a Professor Emeritus of Finance at the Wharton School,
University of Pennsylvania, where he gave courses in micro- and
macro-economics and financial regulation for 30 years. He also taught
courses on The Political Economy of the Mass Media and on The Analysis
of Media Bias at the Annenberg School of Communication at Penn for a
decade. He has a regular "Fog Watch" column in the monthly Z Magazine
and has published numerous articles on economics, finance, foreign
policy, and media analysis in a wide array of professional and popular
journals.
